More evidence WVU to Big 12? WVU cancels FSU game

If you're looking for more evidence West Virginia is likely headed to the Big 12 this fall, the Mountaineers canceled their Sept. 8 game at Florida State, sources told CBSSports.com.

West Virginia originally had its 2012 schedule formatted for eight conference games as a Big East member - that's before TCU's decision to join the Big 12. But if the Mountaineers join the Big 12 this fall, they will have nine conference games and had to drop one contest.

Florida State released a statement Saturday morning confirming West Virginia's decision.

"We were informed in writing late Friday afternoon of West Virginia University’s intention to cancel its 2012 football game with Florida State University scheduled for Sept. 8 in Tallahassee," Florida State AD Randy Spetman said. "We are disappointed for our coaches, players and fans that this game will not take place as originally scheduled.

"We now face the challenge of completing our 2012 schedule just seven months before the start of the season. We will work quickly and diligently to fill the hole on our schedule and will communicate with our season ticket holders and fans as the process moves forward."

The Mountaineers must pay Florida State at least $500,000 because they cancelled the game less than 12 months before kickoff, The Orlando Sentinel reported.

Florida State's best option to replace West Virginia is one of the remaining seven Big East teams, all of which will need at least one game if WVU leaves for the Big 12. The most likely candidates to replace WVU on Florida State's schedule would be future ACC members Pitt or Syracuse.

WVUfan007 and WVUDIEHARD2.............Now, is this the same WVU team who got sand-blasted by LSU 47-21 at Mountaineer field, and then sand-blasted by Syracuse 49-23, and then Lost to Louisville 38-35 ?  Yes, I thought it was the same bunch of misfits !   You Mountaineer ridge-runners, have a very short memory, and who cares who your natural rivialries will be in the BIGXII.  At least, you don't have any friends left in the B1G, ACC or SEC.  WVU good Luck in the BIGXII, and we hope you have many many years of success out there, and plenty of scenic miles traveled to your new rivals, you deserve every ounce of it.

Until the BIG 12 loses it's AQ bid, It isn't going anywhere. Dying conferences don't add BCS winners and top 25 teams.

WVU is a bunch of backstabbing weasels.  What a bunch of wusses.  I think Joe Paterno only lost to the bunch of jokers in WVU 2 times in all his years at PSU and it was his worst teams that actually lost to those bunch of wusses.
